Baby shawl and bracelets

Earlier this year a friend of my mom's asked if I could make a baby shawl for her granddaughter.
She said she wanted it to be circular and made with white yarn. They were the only requirements!
So I looked through some old baby patterns I've got stored away, chose one and got  started.
This week I finished it:

The baby is due the middle of July so I left if a little late but this shawl is going to be mailed today so it should make it in plenty of time :)
It measures 43 inches across and I used around 150g of 3ply baby yarn to make it.
Another project I did this week was a bracelet. I got this on my last trip to England:
I looked online for a bracelet tutorial and found this one:
The girl explains everything is such an easy way and the finished bracelet is so I got started:

Here's my version:

It brought back so many memories of making these kind of bracelets when I was a kid! I'm planning on making bunch of them in different colours to wear this summer.
Have a wonderful day everyone!



  1. It's funny how these homemade bracelets can be more eye-catching than expensive jewellery. Your shawl will be treasured for years!

  2. Really like this circular shawl its very pretty and im sure they will love it ♡

  3. The circular shawl is delightful, a definite family heirloom, stunning.

  4. I just love that shawl, so delicate and pretty it will be treasured. I like the bracelets they are all the thing amongst the young one's here now. I have been making very simple necklaces too, I must try the bracelets they will be lovely and light to wear in the summer. :)

  6. Oh wow, that little shawl is just simply gorgeous and I'm sure it will be much treasured for many years. And I love your bracelet too - yes that does invoke a few lovely childhood memories :-)
